Compared to the other beaches on the west side of Lefkada
, Pefkoulia is easy to access. It is very close to the resort of Agios Nikitas
(about 1.5 km) and the road passes right above the beach.
The beach is a mixture of sand and gravel and intense waves may be often present. Due to its proximity to the capital and Agios Nikitas, as well as the easy access, it may get crowded in July and August, although it is a long beach. There are two taverns and one cafeteria offering a limited number of sunbeds so you should bring your own beach umbrella if you decide to visit Pefkoulia. There is a small parking lot next to the road and some parking spaces in front of the beach taverns.
